A smart women once said, "The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook". I saw Julie & Julia over the weekend and I must say that I absolutely loved it and was completely inspired. Both Julie and Julia fiercely went after their passions - writing and cooking. I think I was surprised at how much I related to both of these amazing women - Julie aspiring to be something bigger than herself and Julia fearlessly chasing her dreams without apologies. Maybe I'll visit a used bookstore this week in search of Mastering The Art of French Cooking, not that I will ever master the art of French cooking but I think it will be great inspiration on my bookshelf.
